About Us

Sylvan Strings is an association of professional musicians in the Seattle area who have performed together since 1990. Violinists, violists, cellists, and guitarists offer varied ensembles from string quartets to soloists to make your event truly memorable. We have extensive experience providing beautiful music for weddings, corporate events, commitment ceremonies, and parties in a variety of venues throughout the Pacific Northwest.

With our wide repertoire, Sylvan Strings can work closely with you to determine the style of music and specific pieces that best reflect you and your unique event.

Something to consider...

  • If the event is outdoors, please note that the quartet needs a covered space to protect our instruments from the sun and rain. A 10' by 10' tent works well for outdoor events when no other covering is available. Most event coordinators and rental facilities are able to help you with that.
  • We need four armless chairs. Folding chairs are fine.
  • For lengthy engagements, we always appreciate being invited to eat during our break time. We stay refreshed and can play lively music for hours when properly nourished!
  • We are happy to play any unusual pieces that are your favorites. If the piece you want played is standard quartet music or one we can easily find an arrangement for, there is no additional fee. However, if we need to have an arrangement made, there is an additional fee for that service. In either case, we appreciate having advance notice to make sure we have exactly the music you want in plenty of time for your event.

"The Sylvan String Quartet was a great addition to our wedding! Their music made the wedding come alive. They were flexible in providing the music we wanted. They were able to learn the music to 3 popular pieces in a short period of time, and to handle the unusual arrangements we asked for, including accompanying the groom in a serenade to the bride.

It was an advantage to be able to work directly with the musicians who would be playing for us. Not too mention that they are professional, mature and fun!" ~Krista H.

"From my very first meeting with the Sylvan String Quartet, they took no time in demonstrating how amazing they were at adapting to the most unlikely of requests. Including all of our advanced planning conversations with the group coordinator, they provided me with exceptional service. I rarely heard “no” and if I did it was always substituted with an alternative solutions often times better than my original request!

Sylvan String Quartet is to be highly commended and recognized for their extraordinary professionalism. They have been hired by my company for weddings and for the Christmas holidays. I must acknowledge the tremendous efforts on their part to provide for my clients exactly what they requested, which they artfully achieved, surpassing every expectation!

I highly recommend the use of their talents and would rely on their credibility to the highest degree!" ~Vincent S. Lipe, President, ACQUISITIONS Event Management, Inc
